Hillary Clinton Still Less Popular than Donald Trump

He wrote on Twitter that the poll has a history of being "the most inaccurate". In contrast, 31% said Russian Federation didn't try to influence the election and just 14% said Trump aides didn't help or Trump didn't benefit from Moscow's efforts.

Fifty percent of USA citizens say the 45th president is doing a worse job than most past presidents, while just under 25 percent say he is doing better than his predecessors. Among Democrats, 8 in 10 believe Russian Federation attempted to influence the election and more than 6 in 10 think members of Mr. Trump's team attempted to aid their efforts.

Approaching six months in office, President Trump's overall approval rating has dropped to 36 percent from 42 percent in April. "Most Americans disapprove of his son and other advisers meeting with a Russian lawyer during the 2016 campaign, but that hasn't really moved the needle on any other public opinion metric related to the president". "Interestingly, Nixon's job rating at that point in his tenure - 39% approve and 49% disapprove - was about the same as Trump's current rating".

In the emails, Goldstone pointed to the Russian attorney as the source of potentially damaging information on Hillary Clinton as "part of Russia and its government's support for Mr. Trump".

Trump's six-month approval rating is 36%, the lowest for any president over the past 70 years, according to an ABC News/Washington Post poll released Sunday. Other respondents used more positive word-associations, including 41 percent who said the president's tweets were "interesting" and 21 percent who called them "refreshing". The poll also found that half of those surveyed preferred Obamacare to the GOP plan to replace it, while only 24% preferred the Republican plan.

Good question. Mike Pence, Paul Ryan, Mitch McConnell, Ted Cruz, business leaders such as Stephen Schwarzman and Carl Icahn, and a raft of White House advisers, including the bulk of the National Security Council, can not fail to see the chaos, the incompetence, and the potential illegality in their midst, and yet they go on supporting, excusing, and deflecting attention from the President's behavior in order to protect their own ambitions and fortunes.

Fifty-seven percent of respondents said that the more they hear about the president, the less they like him.

Republican senators' effort to pass their own healthcare overhaul bill collapsed late on Monday, stoking doubts over the likelihood that Trump's pro-growth agenda would come to fruition.

The telephone poll, conducted by Iowa-based Selzer & Co., interviewed 1,001 American adults and has a margin of error of plus or minus 3.1 percentage points.
